I found a nickname for him, "Peque" short for pequeno or small in Spanish
Modern Love (Cuban Style)
I swear to Christ, my sister and her husband (who is from Cuba) are the modern day Lucy and Ricky. Today, he stalled his car trying to get out of a parking lot and she yelled in a high-pitched voice “PEH-KAYYYY” (we call him Peque, short for Pequeño—Spanish for little one—because he is 5’3”) “Ay por Dio watch what you’re doing!!!” and he responded in his broken english “Ayyyyy baaaaabe. If you wanted one perfect husband you no should look in COOBA”.
